BEST OF SEASON 4: Featuring Lauren Ruotolo
As we continue our “Best of Season 4 Series” this Summer, we go back to a true favorite: Rob Scheer talks with Lauren Ruotolo, author of “Unstoppable in Stilettos”, inspirational speaker, and award-winning content producer.
Be this the first time you’ve heard this interview or an encore, we know you’ll love Lauren as much as we do.
At 18 months Lauren was diagnosed with a rare disease called McCune Albright’s Syndrome which left her walking with crutches full time at the age of 5 years old. After spending more than 20 years in magazine publishing and healthcare, Lauren now commits 100% of her time advocating for the 61 million people in the US and 1.2B globally who identify as disabled. Currently she is working with global corporations on why including disability in all your DEI, hiring and believes that all people matter.
